I was born in Lumsden and lived in various rural communities across Southland before my family moved to Invercargill. I have been a member of ACT since its formation, campaigned for the party in 1996, 1999, 2002 and 2005, and was employed by the party from 1997 to 2000. I have worked for multinational healthcare companies overseas, including my current role as an International Patient Engagement Director. In my career, I have gained experience in leadership and strategy, public affairs, government relations, public policy, and stakeholder engagement. I volunteer with patient organisations and enjoy hiking and travelling.

I strongly support ACT's vision and policies for a better New Zealand. I have a good understanding of the workings and processes of the New Zealand Parliament and have maintained my interest in politics while living overseas, supporting issues, candidates, and political parties that align with my classical liberal views. I can bring my dedication and motivation to the ACT team to support the improvement of New Zealand for current and future generations.
